have on our ability to build neighborhood. if we wanted to explore exempting affordable housing maybe the board would revel this resolution today and direct mr. golden to come back with short order of an analysis and perhaps a recommendation to modified the resolution. and then we would ask you to develop something in short order and i think it's a reasonable request. also i want to clarify one thing we've heard public speakers saying this assessment would be used to have the fund
10:01 am
>> the ed code and government code that deals with developer fees is very specific. there's a specific language it's to be used for the construction and reconstruction for schools but you can only spend it on the correction and reconstruction of the schools. you're also requested to report our development expenditures and the committee can review that to make sure our spending the fund in accordance of state law >> and you're absolutely sure about that? i'm interested in that we can talk about that and follow-up on the commissioner suggestion. we have this - so the defining
10:02 am
affordable housing in san francisco is very difficult and the market rate development pays into an affordable fund it's going to be hard but i'd be interested to see who pays the developer fees. i'm assuming that's all part of the analysis to follow up on the commissioners request. and it occurred to me when we were talking about the hospitals do the public agencies pay for these? >> any facility that is owned and occupied - so if you see san francisco is building a hospital then keyes - kaiser permanent is
10:03 am
building a hospital then it's not exempt. >> i'm putting something on the table and i appreciate number one this conversation but particularly to the c ac and maybe that can be worked out. i hate to put another thing 0 on your list but it's the question of these developer fees and the purpose of them and when we ask a school to pick up and move to other site and how we help the school who has to move while we do great renovation how do we
10:04 am
substitute the super support the school needs pack up thought the school year to move to another location while their school is on the bond schedule. i know the superintendent has tried to address that i would like to see this question go to you as well and get some real analysis how we know use those funds to support schools that have to move and the combination there's a real capital impact but based on, you know, a bond before so i'm hoping you can maybe help us develop some strenl for schools that offer support for them etc.
10:05 am
i'm hoping to kick it to your committee and staff to bring it back to the board of education your short order analysis. >> and that's fine commissioner. i'm happy to do that i want to some extent it's unrelated to the collection of developer fees. it's related to the process of moving the schools around internally and occasionally to another location and stipend we give and how do we help and kworpt. i think there are times when there's hick cups.
10:06 am
and by the way, all of the school sites are criminally voebl with our people but how all this works >> i heard, i heard. >> it will obviously be the latest one movie over the summer to a temporary site. the only question i have to circle back with our consultant on is assuming this passes tonight and we come back with an amendment i'm going to have check do we have to go through a notification process and do the same steps and i'm unclear on the process. but it seems - and that is
10:07 am
likely the case. i think the hardest part is what is the amr or the affordable rate a completely clear definition that's we can't get into an argument over and we can't have developers suing us overseas fees >> yeah. i think we have to come up with something. any other comments or questions for the board? okay roll call please
10:08 am

10:16 am
i know this to be true. i have nothing against teach for america's teachers but i have seen all the research. they wanted all the teacher for america interims to go to we'll call hard staff schools we part of our effort was to do the opposite i still have that certain anybody want to say anything about that? >> thank you your concerned are duallyly note. part of the challenges we have is that we don't also have teachers that are willing to go to our hardest staff schools.
